Record-keeping, financial controls and disclosures

Visma requires honest, accurate and timely recording and reporting of information in order to make responsible business decisions.

All business expense accounts must be documented and recorded accurately in a timely manner. If you are not sure whether a certain expense is legitimate, ask your controller. Policy guidelines are available from your controller.

All of Visma’s books, records, accounts and financial statements must be maintained in reasonable detail, must appropriately reflect Visma’s transactions, must be promptly disclosed in accordance with any applicable laws or regulations and must conform both to applicable legal requirements and to Visma’s system of internal controls.

Business records and communications often become public, and we should avoid exaggeration, derogatory remarks, guesswork, or inappropriate characterizations of people and companies that may be misunderstood. This applies equally to e-mail, internal memos, and formal reports. Records should always be retained or destroyed according to Visma’s record retention policies. In accordance with those policies, in the event of litigation or governmental investigation, please consult the Division Director.
